A Very British Coup: Wargaming A Radical Government
Stone Paper Scissors & Games for the Many

Add to calendar

In a game based on the acclaimed novel, A Very British Coup, fifty players take on the roles of the different factions of the 1980s Labour party. They must compete and collaborate to ensure that their preferred policies are prioritised by the new government. Others are playing the malign forces of the deep state whose task is to frustrate and sabotage the realisation of Labour’s socialist programme.

The action of this megagame is supervised by umpires and the players are not required to learn any rules to participate in this political simulation.
